Kale chips

Tried a new thing. Kale chips. And they were yummy!
I was skeptical, as how could  dried leaves taste like anything. But I was wrong!
Start with a bunch of Kale.
Cut out the center vein.
Cut into roughly 2 in pieces.
Discard the veins.
Rinse well to remove any grit, and lightly dry on paper towels.
Lightly toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt.
Bake at 290 for about 15-30 minutes, watching closely until they become dry and crisp.
Don't over cook, or you'll end up with burnt chips. Use a spatula to loosen them from the pan and slide them into a bowl.
And I must say, they are as addicting as potato chips, only way better for you.  :-)
